Not many people are going to think Aaron Rodgers‘ name has really been sullied by all of this, but, as the Packers quarterback put it so eloquently Wednesday, “Not funny, ESPN.” ESPN was up to its elbows reporting on the Aaron Hernandez investigation Wednesday, and everything was going swimmingly until Jeremy Schaap checked in from the courtroom to update viewers on the case. Schaap, with slow and measured words, reported on the murder charges, but he got one bit of phrasing wrong: the name of the accused NFL player. Schaap told America that Aaron Rodgers was the one being charged, not Aaron Hernandez. Rodgers had some thoughts about the slip-up later.
